I reached out to Chef Hernandez for our Anniversary dinner. He was quick to respond and we agreed on a price and menu within no time. He was in constant touch on the day of the dinner and brought an assistant with him to carry all the stuff that he needs. He was quick with the setup and just around the time we were hungry we had our courses ready. Every course was very delicious and it felt like we were fine dined but at the comfort of our home. His passion for fresh ingredients and cooking in general was evident through his talks and the food. Our personal favorite was the Risotto. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to hire a private chef for their events.Sep 19, 2020VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply

Without a doubt the BEST NIGHT EVER! BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! THE YUMMIEST FOOD WE EVER ATE! Chef Albert is amazing! Every year we host a dinner for six of our good friends and this year we decided to take the hassle out of preparing the dinner. I started scrolling through chefs in our area and The Untamed Chef info just popped out. From start of conversation to end of our dinner Chef Albert was very responsive. This was our first experience having a Chef cook in our house. He takes your ideas, likes and dislikes and runs with it. Now the day of the meal Chef Albert arrived at our house on time took hold of our kitchen and my husband and I were free to get ready and enjoy time with our friends without having to worry about prepping or cooking. We had a lovely three-course off the hook meal . The appetizers (pic below) was to die for. Sweet,salty and savory all there to chose from and was tasty. The truffle butter popcorn was so amazing. The salad was great mixes of greens and fruit and blue cheese it was a hit. Then the main course the juiciest prime rib, full flavor mash potatoes and white asparagus. Our friends loved it we are already planning another event with Chef Albert. Some other great things to point out is he plates everything with his dinnerware and cleans up after. Our kitchen was spotless. Thank You Chef Albert for such a wonderful night.Dec 19, 2020VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply

I don’t even know where to begin! Last night we hosted a beautiful dinner experience for my dear friend’s 50th and it was the best experience ever! Chef Albert created an 8 course absolutely delicious vegetarian menu with a theme of bringing the world to us with his own creative twist to different cuisines from Japan, Mexico, Italy and Indian to name just a few. His bold flavors, amazing presentation, and and extremely friendly demeanor was truly the best experience we have ever had! He brought his own beautiful dishes & cutlery and left the kitchen spotless as if we had never even had a party! We have been to many Michelin star restaurants but I can honestly say that Chef Albert’s dishes beat any Michelin Star restaurant hands down. Truly better than French Laundry & Atelier Crenn in my honest opinion! Oh and the icing on the cake was meeting his wonderful sous chef, his son Adam who was so hardworking, polite, and talented himself. What a memorable evening for all of us. We are already talking about our next event with him. Thank you Chef Albert & Adam for making our evening the most memorable ever! If you’re looking to bring a Michelin star experience to your home, look no further! I wish I could give him a 10 star rating!Nov 8, 2020VerifiedAlbert J. Hernandez The Untamed Chef's reply
It is not every day that you get to cook for foodies who have travelled the world & eaten at amazing restaurants. Foodies who have a palette for adventure excitement & enjoy the food the technique as well as the creativity that goes into creating an experience that from start to finish leaves you wanting more. I am humbled and I do give all honor and all praise to GOD for the talent in which he has blessed me with as well as having the will to drive to you and your guests and bring an experince that far surpasses the norm into a realm of Culinary Nirvana... I have and still Look up to the gretness of restaurants like Atelier Crenn & The French Laundry but I always told myelf my Food can go up Against any Michelin or Great Restaurant if I just cook my food and my flavor. Thank you for reminding me of that❤ I look forward to our next Culinary Adventure that will be taking us to Italy😀 Thanks Again Asha Stay Untamed ~Chef AJH
